Evaluation of effect of oral applying of Bacillus licheniformis CH 200: DSM 5749 and Bacillus subtilis CH 201: DSM 4750 on development and composition of red-eared slider’s (Trachemys scripta elegans) intestinal microflora based on water quality changes in aquaterrariums
Summary.

Frequent cases of bacterial infections caused by contact with semi-aquatic turtles and water from their thanks had been reported in US, Japan and many other countries. In Poland the topic of microbiological hazard associated with reptile keeping is very rarely discussed. Even less is mentioned about eventual impact of probiotics as factors limiting the colonization and presence of harmful Enterobacteriaceae. The aim of the study was to investigate the microbiological threat related to turtles and tortoises; evaluating the use of probiotics to reduce intestinal pathogenic microflora of red-eared sliders, which is potentially hazardous to humans. The results of the study suggest that tank water is the potential reservoir of pathogenic microorganisms. Oral application of probiotics containing the Bacillus licheniformis CH 200: DSM 5749 and Bacillus subtilis CH 201: DSM 4750 resulted in building a probiotic population in turtle gastrointestinal tract. It affected the water microflora in aquaterrariums by increasing the total number of bacteria, including lactic acid bacteria. Reduction of the presence and quantity of Escherichia coli serotype O157:H7 seems also to be relevant.

Key words: red-eared slider, microflora, probiotics
